-- when obama won the effort and energy that african-americans put into his victory meant that many of the associations which -- this happen before. it changes things. the one thing to remember, we are the only race, only race that the republican party has not pursued. they -- zero. so they get zero response. there's nothing in any of the associations that can be said to lead african-americans, large associations, the fed responded to cited or articulate. the problem is and question was about coalition building. i think that is an important issue. it would be easy to build coalitions if the republican ticket wins because it would be a lot of people who say we don't have to have coalitions that are just response. the problem is that without some of these organizations that were not as responsive as they should've been after obama got into the white house, we cannot maintain without a link left. there are a variety of explanations for the. probably my simplest example, shirley sherard. remember, we immediately conceded to the right wing media spin can you explain who she is. >> the af

and white college graduates and working class voters voted in 2008. minorities 80/20, obama. white college graduates a four-point deficit, and the right hand column you see how much demographic change we have just in the last four years based on current population survey eligible voters. according to be sedated, we've seen an increase of three points in the share of eligible voters were minority's and a decrease of three points in the share of voters who are white noncollege or working class. that's quite a lot of change in a short period of time. let's just think a bit about what these figures mean, the figures from 2008 and the figures for today. even though it looks like the minority vote usher should go up, let's just say it does not. but let's say that obama gets again the 80% of the minority vote he got in the 2008. let's get nearly loses white college graduates by four-point. it means that you actually be competitive in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change

want to pin you down though. do you believe in gay marriage in the same way that president obama felt the need to clarify his stand, recognizing the institution of marriage as being possible and, indeed, should even be legal between a man and a man and a woman and a woman? cain cain david, i'll go right to the end of my answer. i would let state legislatures because the rules and regulates about marriage have traditionally been state policy, i would let state legislators make the decision about whether they would accord that -- >> moderator: you're not prepared, you're not prepared -- kaine: let me finish. i would be fine if they did it and they labeled it marriage, civil union or domestic partnership. for me is test is, are people given the same legal rights and responsibilities regardless of their sexual orientation? i think legal equality should be the policy. >> moderator: governor allen. allen: i believe marriage should be between one man and one woman, and that's the definition i've supported. i don't believe in discrimination against people on account of their sexual preference

response. we have obama brought by bringing debate, sharing responsibility, looking on stainability, ownership or just natural movement which we need to share and dallas -- i hope this message will be able to convey because american people individually in their differences need to hear they are saving life of millions of people. we have to share the burden with other countries now, and that should be the message. >> peter? >> along the same lines. save money, save millions of lives, and has also, i think, improved american image in the world to a large extent. decreasing that effort now is not only going to cost millions of lives because people will die, but also, i think, would be stupid from a perspective of smart foreign policy. now, let's see how our friends -- the biggest problem i have is the conference may be how do american aids activists going to handle that? that is, i think, the biggest challenge. >> well, that's a good note to take questions from the audience. i ask that you raise your hand, wait until the microphone reaches you, identify yourself, and give us a real que

about hong kong, he said for 50 years they can keep the present system. if you asked obama what he plans to do for the next 50 years for his country, that would hardly be a serious question. i mean, no american leader, nina, four years is long term. and think to the end of their term to the next election. so i think he did have a long-term perspective. at the same time he was experimental. and he didn't have fixed notion. and he was across the river for groping first dose. again, that term was somehow attributed but it was a unique and. he didn't invent the term. he used the term, use the ideas that he was a manager who put it all together and provide the direction, firm and that made it all happen. >> watch the entire interview with ezra vogel and his biography, "deng xiaoping and the transformation of china," tonight at 8 p.m. eastern here on c-span2. .. there is one line i have right here. apparently in a meeting at the conference boehner told people, get your ads in line and i think that is how congress has been so polarizing and so effective that a book like this would be great for

happens tomorrow is president obama has said that he will sign the jobs act. that name for the act was a little bit misleading, maybe for some political reasons. it's not about jobs. it's called jumpstart our business startups, that spells jobs. and what it is, it's controversial. i like it though. notably, as an experiment it may or may not work well, but let me tell you what's the most interesting part of the jobs act. the jobs act was created in response to requests from internet website providers who wanted to create a crowd funding website for entrepreneurs. so if you're trying to start a business, you can put it up on their website and say, i'm looking for money, and then thousands of investors, or millions, all over the world and send money and you can start a business. .. >> so i think this is a good experiment. now, what congress has done is they're worried that it's going to be, there's a lot of cheats out there, unfortunately, and someone is going to steal money from someone else this way. so one thing they've done in the legislation is that for people -- you have to doc

to kennedy space center. what will these vehicles be used for? president obama has called for sending humans to an it's royce by 2025. these are grand goals, and they're broadly consistent with the goals that were expressed in the 2010 authorization act. i see two possible areas of concern. one is that a pay as you go approach can result in slow progress if funding lemes are not -- levels are not adequate. none has had a flight rate as hoe as one -- low as one that is currently projected. it could be challenging to keep mission ready. another is that the sos/orion combination, of course, was never intended to carry out missions beyond low-earth orbit by itself. for example, an asteroid mission requires hardware that's a capable of providing crew support in deep space for many months. but there's no funding, and nasa's budget cannot develop such vehicles. nasa's budget today is insufficient to carry out the administration's plan on the stated schedule. sos and orion will be highly capable, and their development is progressing very well. but they're only part of the picture. without the means

is more american jobs. the presiding officer: the senator from south carolina. mr. demint: president obama, when you took office almost four years ago, you promised to create jobs and to reduce our deficit. yet, four years later, we have fewer americans working than in the last 30 years and we have historic debt and deficits. now you say raising taxes will solve our problems, but those who create jobs disagree. yesterday, a businessman from south carolina came to washington to present a very simple proposition. he had built this business from his garage to 150 workers, putting every dime he could back into his business. his plan was to add 25 workers next year if we keep taxes the same, but to do nothing if we follow your plan to raise taxes. mr. president, if you really want to create jobs, help our economy and reduce our deficit, stop threatening to raise taxes. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from ohio. mr. portman: we just heard from a number of my colleagues about issues with our jobs and the economy, the debt, unemployment at high rates for 43 months, unp

coming down on them, and what we have seen recent administrations have come under the obama administration with the bailout of certain industries, the takeouts certain industries, not necessarily socializing something, but becoming partners with gm or chrysler or with the health care situation. were you could point to certain things with the pharmaceuticals, the pharmaceutical industry was in favor of certain things about certain other things require no co-pays or require that generics shall not be used. this tends to favor the industry. you have partnerships come you have partnerships with ethanol and that or whatever. and so he you can point the finger to a bunch of parties. i think that the pure forms of the republican party are pure conservatism, and they have a tendency to stay away from that. >> host: david pietrusza, in the 1920 election, was the corporate interest of randolph hearst involved? >> guest: they are such dabblers in politics. william hearst is a radical figure, a radical democrat. he then becomes quite conservator later in his career than supportive of co
